Bracket Madness

March makes way for you to become part of something bigger than yourself as Bracket Madness takes over Vitalant in Northern California! As a life-changing blood donor, you will help determine the final winner! In the spirit of basketball fever across the nation in March, all donation centers and blood drive regions have been assigned a seed to compete as a team and determine the ultimate best. 

During opening weekend (March 1 – 3), the first four teams compete to determine the final two seeds. Then each week, teams will compete head-to-head to see which achieves the higher percentage of their blood collection goal. The winner advances to the next round while their opponent is eliminated, until two finalists remain to battle for the Championship! An awe-inspiring trophy, exclusive celebration and of course, bragging rights for being the most awesome team are on the line! 

Tune into our Facebook page on Thursday, Feb. 28 at Noon to watch the seeds revealed on Facebook Live! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter through the month for updates.

Thousands of volunteers blood drive coordinators partner with us to ensure a safe blood supply is available for patients who need it.
